Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

The contact owns a 2005 Kia Spectra. While exiting a driveway at 10 mph, the contact heard a loud noise under the vehicle. Upon further inspection, she noticed wires hanging from the front passenger side tire. She took the vehicle to a local dealer and was informed that the connector from the wheel speed sensor had fractured and caused the tire to fail. The contact is in the process of having the vehicle repaired. The failure and current mileages were 24,145.
